“ash boarding adventure!”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We loved our trip to Cerro Negro. Our guide, Guillermo, took my husband and I for the hike up and the slide down. His specialty is adventure travel and he is really well-versed in volcanoes. He explained to us the geology and ecosystem of the volcano range. He was also a great photographer and took some fun pictures of us sliding down the ash. The actual sledding was steeper and faster than I anticipated, but it was a lot of fun.

“Great adventure”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We climbed this vulcano with our two daughters last summer.
We travelled there from Masaya by hiring a minivan and driver.
From Masaya it is a long drive but I understand there are tours leavinf from Leon as well.
It is not easy to get there but when you fianlly do the sight is amazing. The climb is not to hard and the views on the crater and the surroundings are beautifull. Going down again is quite an adventure. You can go down boarding or walking. either way you'll get down looking black.
It is a nice adventure to do with older children.
Do go as early as possible because you cannot chelter anywhere from the sun and the heath

“Pure Adrenaline”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

One of my best days In Leon was our visit to Cerro Negro to go ash boarding.We used Vapues tour and opted to do a private guide.The hike up to the peak is not difficult just strenuous because it is steep, it take around 45 minutes to an hour to get up there.Once you get up there you will gear up in your jumpsuit to protect you from the gravel. It is a 40 degree drop from the top and seems scary but once you sit on your sled it is pure fun. Only takes like 4 minutes to get down so enjoy!!

“Boarding is a blast!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Great fun - a short hike up and a quick ride down, but what a blast! I'd love to do it again. We did the tour with Quetzaltrekkers as part of a two days hiking/camping experience. Highly recommended.
